Nylon netting in Hawaii?

Post  lavamom on 4/21/2010, 12:41 pm

Has anyone found a good (local) source for the large opening nylon netting to use when making a trellis? I tried Hawaii Hawaii, and they only had a small hole variety - figured I would check here first to save myself some driving around.

Thank you!

Great - thank you!

(And in my first post I meant to write "Hardware Hawaii" not "Hawaii Hawaii"!)

Apparently the Oahu Walmarts (I checked all 3) don't carry trellis netting. Neither does Lowes or Home Depot. I am still looking for a source on Oahu - has anyone gotten any here?

If not - what's the best online source?

Thank you!

Thank you, I didn't realize. If I can't get it locally I may do this.

Thanks HawaiiAl - but I live on Oahu. The Maui people will be glad to know about Ohana Greenhouse.

So in case it helps anyone, I did find an Oahu source for something I hope will work. I will post a picture later. I got what is called "cucumber netting" from Fukuda Seed Store, 1287 Kalani Street, Honolulu, 808-841-6719. The packaging is all in Japanese, so I can't tell you much about it. The holes are 24cm (just over 9 inches) and it's roughly 6 feet wide by 300 feet long (enough for a lot of gardens!!) and cost $11. The woman there is very friendly, and they have TONS of local seeds, all high quality - it's a family business (started by her grandfather I think) - been in business for over 60 years.

Wish I had known! When I saw the Kahului address, I didn't think to check if there was one on Oahu. The stuff I bought ended up making a giant mess. It was impossible to unroll, very difficult to work with. I would not advise anyone to get it!

Hi Lavamom,

I saw some nylon netting at the Home Depot in Pearl City and the Kapolei store.

Hope this post is not too late.

Thanks anyway - I already bought some - but maybe your post will help someone else. I called both those Home Depots, and they both said they did NOT have it - so it must be something new they got in for summer. Good to know.

Good info

Post  mikesakamoto on 6/16/2010, 9:03 pm

Good info on nylon netting. I've been using wire mesh for concrete paving as my vertical trellis. They were leftovers pieces from tomato cages I made. They have 6"x6" openings. Heavy gauge wire, so you'll need a small bolt cutter to clip them off. They sell at all hardware stores for about $50 per 25' roll. I think they're about 7' wide.
